Cool

The idea we've had is Uk 10 pounds (~$15) for three laps of Donnington as a passenger in either the Westfield or the 22B..

One Warm up, One "hot lap" and one cool down.

All money going to a Children's Charity...

Richard, that sounds like a good idea... how about we start a group buy on laps in your car?

awesome videos... Richard you are truly a trusting friend!

Richard, we all know you have the 22B in the UK... but why may I ask? Do you get to drive it much? Is it worth keeping if you don't get to drive it? Just wondering how you stay sane knowing your little baby is 6000 miles away!

also.... what do you drive here?

(I'm full of questions tonight!!)

thanks,

Richard. (your namesake)

p.s. are you going to SEMA? I went last year and when I introduced myself as Richard to everyone they all immediately replied "Squire?"

I know its going to happen again this year!

As one Richard to another Richard without involving the other Richard (loser)

Yes it is very much worth keeping because it is coming back to Australia with me in 2002 after I get to spend 3 or 4 fantastic months in Europe with it.. and it will be a very long term purchase..

I'm just very lucky really as I kinda "fluked" buying the "perfect" 22B and then found a truly AMAZING group of mates that love "me babe" more than I do and they really do..

Here.. I have MY99RS Turbo oh and a Honda Del Sol for the Sunnny.. Sunday mornings Not that there's that many of those at this time of year in the Pacific North WET

Richard,

good luck with the fund raising at Donington. Just remember who gave you the idea of 10 for 3 laps in a 22B or Westfield

Will your car be at Brands on Friday ?

Hi john, Richards car isn't at Brands, i couldn't get another friday off so soon after oulton and the ring sadly.

Just trying to finalise details for Donington at the moment. The guy who has the final say is away till next week but the first signs are promising.

I wont publicise it on the UK sites untill it is 100% certain just in case Donington say no, i can't see them saying no though.

Should be quite popular i think, especially after the video footage has been seen.

The diff was set full rear in case you wondered. Richards 22B was much easier to powerslide and doughnut than the TypeR as it has huge torque, theres no need to rev it at all, just let the torque do the work.

On my westie it's perminant 100% rear I was reving that to the limiter at 7200rpm in 3rd gear, thats 100MPH on the clock. I wanted to see some flames you see LOL

Anyone else feel like they just sat in the corner watching a family reunion?
Correct me if I am wrong but the power split on a 22b is 40-60% front-rear (may be 45-55%). I mention this cuz I noticed the front wheels are not doing a hell of a lot in the video. Well they are not spinning anyway.
Richard have I got that right?

your right mel, when doing doughnuts in a 4x4 car however the centre diff sends all available torque to the wheels that are spinning when it isnt in diff lock setting, thats why the fronts stay staic and the rears spin.

If the centre diff control was set full forward it would lock the fronts to rears and try and spin all four wheels.

The diff was set to open which means that almost all toqrue was sent to the rear wheels.

I kept the diff set all the way back because it is less of a strain on the transmission and makes the car far more prone to oversteer.

full 4x4 doughnuts are really great fun (and far easier once you get it going), but on tarmac I always feel as though they are putting way too much strain on the transmission.

Different story in a rally car (or if you didn't care about the transmission), keep it in full 4x4 mode and nail it, you can get up to some serious rotation speeds . The trick is stopping before you barf!!

Cheers

Simon

John,

thanks for the info regarding Donington. Don't think I'll be able to make it though until next year

However, if you can't take Richard's car to Brands on Friday, I would be more than happy to stand in for you

Must get a ride in your Westie at some point. Looks like my type of fun I'll have to arrange more track events at Knockhill next year to make it worth your while coming up.

OK OK OK, I am half Australian by birth so I have dual citizenship. After watching those clips I think I'm moving to Australia so I can have a 22B as my daily driver. America SUCKS!
